  • hi,

    I have basic setup question about NAP.

    NAP can be installed on windows 2012 server or no?

    also

    there is enforcement method of DHCP.

    is it possible to integrate existing network DHCP server for NAP or we have to create new scopes in NAP settings when choosing DHCP enforcement method.

    thanks

  • Hi

    Yes you can install NAP in windows 2012.

    Yes you can enable the Nap on existing DHCP scopes or you can create new scope if you want.

    Thanks

  • Muhammad is correct in his answer.

    One thing to note, however, is that DHCP enforcement requires that you install NPS on the same server with DHCP. So, if you have a DHCP server running Windows Server 2003 you can't use this.

    If the DHCP server is running Windows Server 2008 or 2008 R2, and you want to use the Windows Server 2012 computer for your NPS, you can install NPS on the DHCP server and configure it as a proxy to forward requests to the 2012 computer.

    In other words:

    DHCP client --> DHCP server, NPS proxy (2008) --> NPS with NAP (2012).
